The Social Climber: Is Marriage Next for Mila Kunis?

It's not always enough to know what's "trending." It kind of helps to know why. Welcome to the Social Climber, where we provide a quick primer on the people, places and things that are being feverishly searched and shared online -- and try to make sense of it all.

Are wedding bells in Mila Kunis' future?

Well, now that boyfriend Ashton Kutcher is officially divorced from Demi Moore, tongues are wagging that Kutcher and his new flame may be ready to head to the altar.

"Ashton and Mila have talked about getting engaged and married for quite a while," someone identified as a source close to Kutcher told People. "He wants to get engaged during the holidays."

The Social Climber always thought the "That '70s Show" co-stars made a pretty convincing couple when their characters, Kelso and Jackie, dated on the show. They're pretty darn cute together in real life, too.

Everything is not all raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens for Carrie Underwood, who is taking on Julie Andrews' iconic role in a live television production of "The Sound of Music."

"I get hate tweets and stuff like 'You're not Julie Andrews!'" Underwood, 30, told Entertainment Weekly.

"I know I'm not Julie," she said. Nobody is, and I would never pretend that I was. ... I know my place."

The American Idol winner will have an opportunity to prove her critics wrong when "The Sound of Music" airs live Dec. 5 on NBC.

There will never be another No. 3.

The Philadelphia 76ers announced Wednesday that they would retire Allen Iverson's number in a halftime ceremony on March 1, 2014, when the Sixers take on the Washington Wizards.

"Allen left everything out on the court, and no one could ever question his heart -- he was relentless, fearless and pound-for-pound, was one of the greatest to ever play the game," Philadelphia 76ers Chief Executive Officer Scott O'Neil said in a statement.

Iverson, who officially announced his retirement Oct. 30, will be in the company of other Sixers greats, including Julius Erving, Wilt Chamberlain and Charles Barkley.

99 bottles of beer on the wall, take one down, pass it around ... and smash it?

That's what happened in Nigeria when Shariah enforcers -- or Hisbah -- destroyed thousands of bottles of beer outside northern Nigeria's largest city of Kano.

Kano's Hisbah chief Aminu Daurawa said the destruction of the beer came with "the ardent hope this will bring an end to the consumption of such prohibited substances," Agence France-Presse reported.

Colorado State Sen. Evie Hudak resigned, effective immediately on Wednesday.

Hudak was facing a possible recall election because of her support for new gun control measures in the state.

By stepping aside, Hudak said she hoped to save taxpayers the $200,000 cost of a special election, ABC's Denver affiliate KMGH reported.

Two of Hudak's Democratic colleagues were also recalled in a September election.
